Combining the thrill of competition with the strategic demands of battle, laser tag has grown to become a popular American pastime since its introduction in the late 1970s. And, as is the case with a range of other family-friendly attractions on our stretch of the Carolina Coast, there’s no shortage of places to pursue this particular amusement on the Grand Strand.
Next time you and your vacation crew have fun in your sights during your stay at Long Bay Resort on the Myrtle Beach oceanfront, consider heading for one of these Grand Strand businesses to pursue a friendly game of laser tag:
WonderWorks — One of the many fun attractions found in the distinctive, upside-down WonderWorks building at Myrtle Beach hot spot Broadway at the Beach, the Laser Tag Combat Zone is a sure bet for those seeking fast-paced and action-packed excitement. The battle arena features a black light-lit maze that offers plenty of hiding spots for ambushing your competition. And after the laser-tag title has been claimed, a range of other fun activities can be found on-site — including the 6D Extreme Motion Ride, the Soar + Explore Zipline & Ropes Course, the Spacewalk Challenge Indoor Ropes Course, and a collection of hands-on, science-themed interactive exhibits divided into six educational Wonder Zones.

Surf's Up — Located off Highway 501 near the Tanger Outlets east of Myrtle Beach, Surf’s Up boasts a laser-tag arena where excitement runs wild and smoke fills the air. As players meander through the corridors and along the ramps of the arena’s dark labyrinth, spectators can follow the action from the lobby with the help of LCD monitors and scoreboards. Other fun attractions at Surf’s Up include an arcade featuring 60-plus games, a 24-foot rock-climbing wall with four separate climber stations, and a pizza/pasta/salad buffet that’s sure to be a hit when all the action gets the troops hungry.

ULTRAZONE Extreme Laser Tag — Found just off Restaurant Row on the north end of Myrtle Beach, this facility features state-of-the-art laser tag equipment and a multi-level, space-outpost-themed battle arena. Aglow with black light-boosted neon imagery, the arena is home to a trio of base areas, allowing three separate teams to do battle at once. An attached arcade offers both newer and retro video games for the gamers in your group to enjoy. For more information, visit http://www.myrtlebeachultrazone.com
Fun Warehouse — Located off Highway 17 on the south end of Myrtle Beach, this family entertainment hot spot boasts a two-story Urban Quest Laser Tag Arena covering a total of 3,500 square feet. Your mission in the game is to snuff out a possible uprising in the chaotic Industrial District, and along the way you’ll encounter 3D props such as fallen steel beams, huge metal gears, oversized bolts, riveted metal walls with broken sections and torn edging, and stacked crates and barrels that hinder your progress through the urban maze. Flashing lights and neon airbrushed artwork add to the sense of impending mayhem. If your crew is hungry for more action after the laser-tag battle has been won, Fun Warehouse offers mini-golf, a 50-plus-game arcade, a roller-skating rink, an elevated go-cart track, and an area dedicated to inflatable slides and bounce houses.
